New awards

I am delighted to announce that I have been nominated for another two awards this week, both of which I am proud and honored to receive.

My thanks and appreciation goes to Jennifer Windram who nominated me for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award and Nina Kaytel who has nominated me for the Sisterhood of the World Award.

As is tradition for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award, I would like to ask all of my readers to please check out Jennifer’s wonderful blog at  I am sure that you will all agree that she has a fantastic site full of great posts.

I also now need to tell you seven things about me. I can’t promise that they will be interesting, but I’ll give it a go:

1. My nickname as a child used to be ‘Bear’.

2. I fractured my coccyx as a teenager.

3. I support Arsenal Football Club – that’s soccer to folks from the US!

4. I’ve met they guy who played Chekov in the original Star Trek and have his autograph.

5. I’ve met the actors who played Worf, Data and Deanna Troi in Star Trek TNG and also have their autographs.

6. I’m a closet Trekkie in case you hadn’t already noticed!

7. The thought of peanut butter and jelly being put together in a sandwich makes me feel nauseous.

My seven nominees to receive the Dragon’s Loyalty Award are as follows:

  2. Yikes–how’d you fracture your coccyx?

    Congrats! I will check your nominees here shortly 🙂

    • It is a rather long story that involves my sister, her solid and unyielding boots, and my naive belief that she wouldn’t take advantage of me when my back was turned. I shall leave the rest to your imagination, but suffice to say it hurt like the clappers!
